Edinburgh based gin distiller, John Crabbie & Co has announced a new 3- year sponsorship deal with Scottish Rugby and Edinburgh Rugby. This will see Crabbie’s Gin become the official Gin partner of Scottish Rugby.
Announcing the partnership, David Brown, MDof John Crabbie & Co said, “We are really looking forward to working with Scottish Rugby. Crabbie’s is probably Edinburgh’s most iconic and enduring drinks brand and the association with Scottish Rugby at BT Murrayfield is a natural fit for us in our home city.
